Moli ke Bhujia

Pin It Now!

Moli also know as radish is mostly available during the winter season in Pakistan. You will find the street vendor, standing out side the scholls and in market places selling radish sprinkled generously with chaat masala after. if you are a vegetarian you will definitely like this recipe, I haven’t learned this recipe from anyone, although  some people add chopped green leaves attached to the moli, or some also make it with spinach but I like it simple. Its quick and easy to make, you can also make moli kay parathay with the left over…

Moli ke sabzi


½ kg moli / radish (peeled and grated)
2 medium onion thinly sliced
2-3 medium-large tomatoes finely chopped
2 green chilies (chopped or whole)
1tbs ginger garlic paste
½ tsp turmeric powder
1tsp red chili powder (if it’s too hot then half the amount)
1tsp salt (salt and red chili is as per your taste)
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 cup oil
½ tsp coriander powder
¼ tsp garam masla powder
Chopped green coriander leaves for garnishing


Heat the oil in a pan, add the onions and fry for a while till the onion turns transparent.  Add the ginger & garlic paste, sauté for a few second and add the tomatoes, cumin seeds, chili powder, salt, and turmeric powder,
fry till the tomatoes turns mushy and oil separates. Now add in the shredded moli and stir fry for 3-4 minutes
.  Add the  green chilies and let it cook covered on low flame till the molis get done and all the water evaporates, if you don’t want it too mushy then after 10 minutes take the lid of and fry the vegetable well till all the water evaporates and oil separates. Sprinkle garam masala powder and coriander powder, stir it once and leave it on dum (covered) for 2-3 minutes, turn off the flame.  Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve. It tastes great Chapati.
